HelpJames.org UpdateTuesday, February 14, 2006 | 1:48 PM
www.MXSponsor.com and www.HelpJames.org would like to thank all the thousands of people who went onto HelpJames.org yesterday. In our first day, we raised over $15,000 worth of cash donations on HelpJames.org to help James Marshall and his family. James underwent over 8 hours of surgery last night to remove his C6 C7 vertebrate, come in from both sides and put plates, rods and a bone graph in place. We have heard from James’s mechanic Dave who said James is still recovering from surgery last night and is doing well. They will be running more tests today and we will have more information soon.
The industry support has been incredible. We have been contacted by Fox Racing, American Honda, Kicker Audio, Freestyle watches and many more. We are pleased to announce that Mark from MDK Motorsports will match all donations this week up to $5,000. What an incredible pledge!
We would like to thank all the people who joined our conference call prayer yesterday. We had over 70 people in one conference call at one praying for James’s surgery and recovery. Brian O’Rourke from Team Faith and Scott Parkinson from Panic Rev Ministries led the group in prayer. Thank you.
Road2Recovery.org, MissionFish.org and Wonder Warthog Racing also have support programs raising money for James including several auctions. Thank you.
To donate to James’s Recovery Fund, you can do so using Paypal on www.HelpJames.org or you can contact www.Road2Recovery.com, www.MissionFish.org and Wonder Warthog Racing who also have support programs raising money for James. We echo Road2Recovery’s goal of raising over $100,000 and we are excited about pursuing that goal with them and other organizations helping James.
Lastly, we would like to thank the following donors, contributors and companies who have contributed to James Marshall’s Recovery Fund on HelpJames.org yesterday. Thank you to every single one of you.
